DIGESTIVE HEALTH

'All disease begins in the gut'

Digestive complaints are common in the modern age as we try to keep up in a world filled with convenience items and short term decisions. Our health is something that we work towards, our body will give us hints as to areas that we could be focusing more on.

 

Some common symptoms that may alert you that your digestion is suboptimal and could do with some work to improvement:

- Bloating

- Nausea, a sick feeling after eating

- Heartburn or reflux

- Vomiting,

- Pain or discomfort (either 20-30 minutes after eating or 2-3 hours after eating)

- Changeable bowel habits (Constipation or Diarrhea)

- Lack of appetite in the morning

- Struggling with a diagnosed condition (IBS/IBD, Chron’s disease or ulcerative colitis).

 

 

What does your poo say about you?

More than you might think for so many of us, it is not something that we think has all that much effect on our health. The size, frequency and shape of our bowel movements all have a lot to say about what our digestive health is doing.  
 

Regular bowel function is essential to maintain a healthy digestive tract and overall wellbeing. Constipation or irregular bowel motions can cause bloating and abdominal discomfort, and lead to reabsorption of toxins into the body contributing to skin problems, headaches, hormonal imbalance and decreased vitality.
